My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This is the grown up version of my Three Triangles Shawl - it features the same "three triangles" shawl, for a wrap that will stay put on your shoulders, but uses a textured stitch that is fun to work.
Shawl was named after one of our favorite beaches, Short Sands Beach in York, Maine, where the photos were taken.
You can use any weight of yarn, any hook, any gauge, and make any size shawl.
Finished shawl was made using yarn from a recycled thrift store sweater, approximately a DK weight, used 7.2 ounces, and measures 20" deep by 50" across after blocking.
Pattern was professionally tech edited by Tracie Barrett, http://traciebarrett.com/.
